Complimenting the stunning autumnal colours in Pavilion Gardens, Buxton, Derbyshire, the river Wye has turn a vivid orange colour. <br />
<br />
The rare phenomenon, is explained on the 'Explore Buxton' website: "After periods of heavy rain the river flowing through the town often turns a striking orange colour. This is caused when the river level raises and flows through iron bearing strata from the remains of coal mining workings in Burbage"<br />
